Beryll, Pt. 1

Planetarium had its 9-year anniversary this week. I took some deep dives into 2021 releases again (almost finished finally!) and discovered some real gems for a new Geophon trilogy. The meditative album by Jon Hopkins stood out to me in particular. I took almost every track from it and combined it with a potpourri of autumnal ambient. The three parts of “Beryll” will be released over the course of the winter.

Schillerfarben, Pt. 1

Albums by Hammock, anthéne and Jonas Munk came out roughly at the same time. This is the first of many mixes that features them.
“Schillerfarben” is a three-part mix compilation of 58 tracks that includes warm and fuzzy ambient, illuminating and elevating drones, cinematic post-rock as well as shimmering piano pieces.

Best of Planetarium 2021, Pt. 1

Once again, I am very pleased to showcase an extended selection of my favourites from the past year. With this first retrospective on 2021, I am also celebrating the 350th mix release on Planetarium!
However, this year there will be four sets in total with the first two sets covering the amazing releases published up until the end of June 2021, because there simply is and was too much to catch up to. My new discoveries up to here include Arooj Aftab, Tomasz Mreńca, Lamasz, James McAlister and The Broken Cradle. With 15 out of 25 tracks being first-time plays (premieres), this set hopefully justifies the long wait since the last Planetarium release.
This first part also contains no tracks that I have used for Neptunian, so I decided to also use an excerpt from this set as the January 2022 edition for FRISKY Radio.

The second part will be available in limited release next week.
The third and fourth retrospective will cover the second half of 2021, but will probably only see the light of day around July 2022.
